NHL Playoffs 2014: Brandon Dubinsky scores game tying goal after Marc Andre-Flery falls down (GIF)


The series between the Columbus Blue Jackets and Pittsburgh Penguins has been up and down to say the very least and it’s been demonstrated on a few occasions that no lead is safe — ever. Not when you’re the Columbus Blue Jackets with s 3-1 lead and not even when you’re the Pittsburgh Penguins and holding a 3-0 lead.

Columbus stormed back after falling down to three quick goals in the first period to come within a single goal downy he stretch of the game.

And in a turn of events that totally embodies the chaos of this series, the game tying goal was not scored on a Matt Calvert break away. rather it came on a Brandon Dubinsky empty netter following Marc Andre-Fluery falling down behind the net after passing it up.

This is the way the series has gone and it’s only fitting that yet another game gets tied thanks to a wild and unpredictable play.
